In the last post we chatted about whether the destination of achieving our goals is greater than the learning we gain from the journey.
The journey is very important but…each journey needs a first step.
Just as it was when we were learning to walk, first we crawled, got up and shuffled awkwardly while holding on for dear life, then stumbled, fell over often enough, then finally walked, ran, hopped, skipped and jumped.
Goals that don’t have a big financial cost attached, or won’t take that much time to achieve, and which (we think) won’t have a massive impact on our lives, are usually much easier to decide and act upon as opposed to the ones we feel are really big. But we need to set, pursue and achieve smaller goals (or learn from why we didn’t achieve them) to become confidant enough so that the larger one’s don’t seem that daunting. The bigger goals shouldn’t take precedent because they’re seemingly more important, it’s actually the smaller ones that hold more water as that’s where the shuffling, stumbling and falling should take place so to prepare for the big ones.
The end result of a published book on the shelves in bookstores worldwide can only happen one word at a time.
